Crazed father kills daughter in suicide shooting spree
Wednesday 12 April 2000
A man shot two little girls, fatally wounding one of them, and then killed himself after holding their mother captive for three days and repeatedly raping her because she tried to end their relationship, according to authorities.
Onemeous Phillion James, 46, killed himself on Monday inside the couple's home in Perris, California after the woman fled to a neighbour's home for help.
The girls, ages 2 and 6, were shot in the head. The younger girl, identified as James' daughter, died yesterday, the Riverside County Coroner's office said.
The other girl was the woman's daughter from another relationship. She remains in a critical condition in hospital says Sheriff's Sgt. Perri Feinstein-Portales.
James bound the woman with duct tape and held her that way through the weekend, sexually assaulting her numerous times, Feinstein-Portales said.
On Monday the woman convinced James that she would not run away if she was released, but she went to a neighbour's home and called for help.
Deputies found James dead on a bed. The two girls were found shot in the same room.
Perris is about 60 miles east of Los Angeles.
